Real American Heroes
It is ggod to see the contributions by african-americans. As they were fighting the japanese and germans from taking over the world they were also fighting to prove themselves as equal citizens in the land of opportunity. As was surprised to see this narrated by Ronald Reagan. The US governament painted a pretty picture, but it didn't show the true horror or discrimination. This was done in order so negroes could contribute monetarily to the war effort.
